The Celsus Library: 20,000 Scrolls Lost to History but Its Striking Architecture Remains
Across the Greco-Roman world, there were many collections of scrolls, some kept by private individuals in personal libraries and others stored in public libraries such as the Great Library of Alexandria. One such library that, whose impressive ruins still stand today, is the Library of Celsus in Ephesus, Turkey. The Library of Celsus was the third largest library in Classical Antiquity. It is known for its striking architecture and for the fact that it once held 12,000 scrolls containing a wealth of knowledge from the ancient world. Sadly, none of them survived the library’s destruction in 262 AD.
